Anyway back to this particular card. This time it was Maureen's choice (aka Scrappy Mo) and she asked that we upcycle an item onto our card.
When I receive a card that is too nice to just throw away I either keep the card or I take off the bits that I like, the idea being to use them on my own cards. However that rarely happens - but the intention is there! So this time I rescued a card front that I took from a Christmas card years ago. I die cut this sweet little angel using SB Classic Ovals and then matted it with some red card die cut from SB Classic Scalloped Ovals. Would you believe there was no glitter on my lovely angel? Well, I soon corrected that omission. Lol! The candles and baubles border along the top was printed from one of my Greeting Card programmes, but I can't remember which one. I used an MS punch on it. A little bow and some pearls finished it off. It wasn't until I took the picture that I realised I hadn't put a sentiment on so I will think about that, but it doesn't look too bad without it. What a block head! I am trying to keep my cards pretty flat this year to avoid huge postal charges.
Well that's all for today. Hopefully I can get back to some more regular posts now. I apologise for not visiting you over the last few days but I will rectify that today. I hope this finds you all keeping well.
